Insurer's Motion to Dismiss Case for Collpase Coverage Denied

August 29, 2018
Tred R. Eyerly - Insurance Law Hawaii

In yet another collapse case from Connecticut, the federal district court denied the insurer's motion to dismiss. Maki v. Allstate Ins. Co., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 102708 (D. Conn. June 20, 2018).

In February 2016, the insureds noticed a series of cracks throughout the basement walls of their home. The insureds believed the problem was due to tainted concrete, likely obtained from the J.J. Mottes Concrete Company, which had caused similar problems in homes throughout Connecticut. A chemical compound in the Mottes concrete would eventually cause the home to cave in on itself, and there was no known method to prevent the continuing deterioration.
